First Look: DC’s War for Earth-3 #1 pits evil Batman against an army

Things are going downhill in at least one of DC’s alternate universes. In the new crossover event War for Earth-3, Teen Titans, The Flash, and Suicide Squad all find themselves pitted against Crime Syndicate, the inverse Justice League led by villains Ultraman, Superwoman, and Owlman. Task Force X’s Amanda Waller hopes to take over Earth-3. Crime Syndicate hopes to hit back in the opposite direction. The Flash and the Teen Titans need to find one of them in the middle of a fight. The chaos will make for a lively and explosive series.

The five-issue magazine began March 1, but Polygon got a first look at the seven pages written in ink from War for Earth-3 #1, written by Robbie Thompson (current writer of Suicide Squad) and Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum (Star Wars: Vader), with art by Steve Pugh (Harley Quinn: Broken Glass). The action is as euphoric as one might expect.
